DIGIBOARD, BELL ATLANTIC FORM STRATEGIC ALLIANCE TO MARKET ISDN BUSINESS APPLICATIONS

 DIGIBOARD, BELL ATLANTIC FORM STRATEGIC ALLIANCE
 TO MARKET ISDN BUSINESS APPLICATIONS
 MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- DigiBoard, a division of Digi International, Inc., (NASDAQ-NMS: DGII) announced today a strategic alliance with Bell Atlantic to jointly market ISDN business applications using DigiBoard's LAN internetworking and telecommuting products. The DigiBoard IMAC family of products will be marketed through joint sales calls, trade shows, in-house demonstrations and other special events.
 IMAC, and ISDN remote LAN connection, provides reliable, high-speed data transmission over both ISDN voice circuits and circuit-switched data connections and supports any operating system or application running on Ethernet. The product family includes support for SNMP, making IMAC accessible from any network management system that implements Simple Network Management Protocol.
 DigiBoard recently shipped Dual IMAC, which transmits data at 224 Kbps over ISDN voice calls and up to 256 Kbps over data calls, approximating the speed of Ethernet.
 Dual IMAC is unique in that it can sustain rates of 224 Kbps across digital trunking or across existing digital long distance voice networks to provide ISDN-like performance between areas of the country not yet linked by ISDN.
 This enables remote dial-up capabilities across either digital trunking or existing digital long distance voice networks, and provides low-cost, reliable connectivity for remote LANs and workstations or laptop users on the road.
 Myles Mendelsohn, assistant director-business development for Bell Atlantic Network Services, Inc., who is heading Bell Atlantic's ISDN alliance effort, said, "DigiBoard's market focus and innovative customer solutions are valuable assets to our program."
 "This agreement with Bell Atlantic means that together we can provide a complete solution," said Ham Mathews, general manager of DigiBoard's Telecommunications Group. "IMAC and ISDN provide connections that are 12 times as fast at a fraction of the cost of analog modem/LAN Bridging. This alliance will provide an excellent solution for companies that need high-speed, on-demand telecommuting and LAN-Bridging solutions."
 DigiBoard, a division of Digi International, Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: DGII), manufactures a suite of connectivity solutions for multiuser systems, and local and wide-area networks that support ISA, EISA, MCA and NuBus platforms. Recent industry surveys named DigiBoard products as the most frequently recommended and installed by systems integrators; the firm's technical support is rated the finest in the industry.
